Maybe not as a central anomaly, but that's got a touch of the old "What the hell, universe?" thing going on.
Well that was gendercentric of me. I apologize, and edited.
Perhaps this is a disagreement of Not Canon. In my headcanon, it's hard to envsion a head researcher not getting a lot of flak for a statement like that about a ghost cat that farts cyanide. Is there more of this character? Perhaps I just missed the memo
In andrew swanns scp-001 proposal, it says that we are in control of the scp universe
Therefore, we keep it alive because we can.
So if that's your headcanon, there ya go
An anomalous object that was created as a stretch goal on KickStarter.
"Hi, my name is Colt Messer, and my last KickStarter for the Fork Pants reached its goal in under 13 days. Now we can move to our stretch goal, called the Horror from Hell."
THIS TIME WITH MORE FIRE!
SCP-XXXX is a black briefcase. Upon opening SCP-XXXX, several structures will unfold from within, usually of dimensions large enough to not fit into a non-anomalous briefcase. These structures are made of cast-iron, and display the same properties as the material they are made of, except when one of the structure's functions requires properties differing from those of cast-iron, such as a cast-iron "campfire" that, despite being composed of cast-iron, was able to spread like non-anomalous fire. These structures are always what the person who opened SCP-XXXX wants, such as a "banquet" of cast-iron "food" when exposed to D-████, who reported feeling slightly hungry at the time the test took place. When the briefcase is closed, the structures will collapse back into SCP-XXXX.
Keter, imaginary friend, mind-affecting
as with most older SCP, especially the triple digits, age is considered almost as heavily as the popularity. Lord knows that is true of my own articles as well. Amusingly I almost agree in the Mary Sue claim, if nothing else because it refers to the actual part of the creature being beloved by everyone. Considering the website as a whole, I fully expected to find a collapsible for a completely different file that says this is a brain eating creature from an alien planet or something and and needs a fake file
Yeah, I think any one of these koi articles are good on their own, but the theme is starting to feel repetitive.
The problem is that since there's a recursion, D-Class explorers from more detailed versions of the Foundation our passing through this Foundation.
I actually really like this. "It's turtles all the way down. Spoiler alert: we're not on top."
It'd make for a halfway decent twist, at the very least.
That's kind of my point. The Foundationverse is like the X-Files-verse on steroids. Instead of conspirators high up in your own organization hamstringing your badly undermanned operation, the shadowy forces show up on-site in force, hand you a cellphone with your boss already on the other end, and start carting off evidence. Not only that, you probably know them personally, why they do what they do, and have intentionally worked with them in the past.
Plus, they don't even remotely care about hiding the anomalous from you. You're read in. They care about hiding it from the public.
(I have to admit I only casually watched the show, so I'm not sure what they'd think about Area 51. I don't particularly canon that skip myself…)
To me it isn't because it's just a soda that kills you, I'm pretty sure there was a soda SCP that did it better, can't remember if it was Diet Ghost or The Gorillas Simply Freeze To Death.

Wasn't mulder amnestized when he went into that government based and was stopped at the airstrip. It was during the first season I think.
The first thing that comes to mind is SCP-2020 which is basically an alien that wants to write Science fiction
Goodness this got off to an excellent start. The first paragraph of the SCProcedures ('SCP-XXXX-1 …) could be reworded slightly; in particular the first and third sentences. They're not bad, but they didn't flow very well.
Honestly though, the first paragraph after the description? Consider me hooked!
Moar stuff as I go.
All in all, this took profoundly different turn than what I had originally expected based off the corpse's description. Aside from possibly being tangentially related to 2a, it doesn't seem vital to the piece. Personally, I'd save it for something else1, and find a different catalyst for the arrival of the rest of the skips.
I think the second and third documents can go/merge with the first. There isn't nearly enough added content in the O5 doc to warrant its inclusion, and I feel like the -2s could be shortened slightly, stuck into a table, and appended to the SCP article. I can't say the incident log was entertaining enough to merit inclusion at all.
Beyond that, it's okay for a base. I don't think it goes far enough; it's rather vanilla. There isn't enough going on besides 'they're like us, but not quite'. I don't think they're quite 'wrong' or 'alien' enough to pique my interest.
I've been trying out different works, but I have an upcoming tale I think will do well.
I am sorry for accidentally censoring some of the entries. I made an entry from my computer, and i have an extension that censors bad words. I did not realize it censored the page source in the editor.
So I know that this post might be way too late, but here's an idea: What if you had the item create a Droste Foundation? An infinite recursion of foundation sites. As you go deeper, things get simpler and simpler. This begs the question: What would a human being look like to a world as detailed as a LIFE token? I imagine that it would have mental effects that would get worse as one goes farther down. The problem is that since there's a recursion, D-Class explorers from more detailed versions of the Foundation our passing through this Foundation.
There is in fact a living entity around the can, that cannot be identified yet.
How do we know this? Keep in mind that as the author, you know the entire story, but the Foundation needs to have discovered what it knows about the SCP object through observation and experimentation. You'll need to convince your reader that
someone with no prior knowledge whatsoever of the anomaly managed to somehow figure out (not magically know!) all the information you've got in the article.
